Another busy day on the allotment today. Emily again came with me, and we got loads done. Emily weeded the Kohl Rabi bed, and I finished weeding the Carrot and Onion bed and then moved onto the bed where my new fruit bushes are growing.
The soil is still soft, so it’s easy to pull most of the weeds out. We arrived at the allotment about 11 am due to the fact that we needed to pop into town to sort a couple of things out. We then came home, changed, made lunch to take with us and then popped off to the allotment. The skies were very overcast today and the sun came occasionally. So we both took our waterproof jackets down, just incase we needed them. When the sun was out it got really quite warm, so our jackets came off, but when the clouds gathered overhead it got quite cold. We worked for about an hour and then sat down and had our lunch, then worked for another hour or so before we came home. I watered all my plants in the greenhouse and feed them with Seaweed Fertiliser as they are now producing flowers and fruits. As I was filling up my watering can from the butt by the tap I noticed that my Pumpkins and Squash are starting to produce some fruits. They’re all very small, but hopefully they’ll grow really well.
My weather app said that it would start to rain about 2pm, and it was right. Just a little before 2pm it started to spit spot, and as Emily and I started to clear everything away it became persistent drizzle. We planned getting in the car very well because by the time we got in the car to come home it was raining even more. Next week is rather busy, so I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to get down the allotment, but even if I end up going in the evenings I will. I’ll keep you posted.
